We Love Giving Back to Our Community!
The exposure to the community that is present at the Market is a fabulous feature for non-profits that have tables, to let Market customers know about their event, upcoming raffle, or simply to highlight their organization.
In the past, we’ve hosted a wide range of groups, such as Our Kids Count 50/50 draws, United Reformed Youth group selling cow manure for fertilizer, MS Society selling flowers near Mother’s Day, Ultimate Frisbee getting folks interested in their league, TBay Tel’s Change for Good campaign, Lakehead Transportation Museum telling people about the Alexander Henry coming home, and even the Thunder Bay Public Library has done a pop-up! We generally have room each week for 2 non-profits – one upstairs and one downstairs but this can vary.
If you are holding a shag or other type of benefit, we usually cannot donate gift baskets, but can donate gift certificates if we have capacity. Please email April firstname.lastname@example.org with an outline of what the event is, where it will be located, who it will benefit and any other details. Not all requests will be granted.
Our vendors also regularly donate excess produce or baking to various charities in Thunder Bay.
We no longer allow any political parties to have a booth at the Market, nor to solicit our customers. Those doing so will be asked to leave.
